Basket Case Picnics opened just three weeks ago, and it’s already proving popular.
The business is anchored around the farmers’ markets in Vernon, Kelowna and Peachland.
“Demand for the picnics has been multi-faceted, ranging from boaters and special occasion romantic dates to anniversary celebrations and an elegant and cool alternative to at-home entertaining,” said owner Kelsey Galt.
There are also about 50 Okanagan wineries with picnic licenses permitting al fresco wining and dining.
“Basket Case Picnics will work closely with them to deliver on-site events, and to promote the opportunities to enjoy their wines with a fresh and flavorful dining experience, even where there isn’t a full-service restaurant on site,” said Galt.
Basket Case Picnics uses local, organic and hormone/antibiotic-free ingredients when ever possible, and picnics come packed in a reusable cooler made from recycled products, with reusable plates and utensils.
Basket Case Picnics is at the Monday and Thursday farmers’ markets at Wesbild Centre.
